Unlike merely painting or papering over a lead-painted surface, lead abatement is a way to permanently remove hazards.
Burlingame, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
San Francisco Bay Area’s window replacement specialist, Alexander Window Company, specializing in replacement doors and windows, announces they are now featuring Simonton Windows’ Lead Awareness Program to help trade professionals comply with lead-safe practices.
While lead can be found in many areas throughout homes built prior to 1978, areas around single-pane windows are especially risky. The friction created by opening and closing windows and doors can generate lead dust, which then contaminates the household. Lead dust is also generated by deterioration caused by moisture and thermal exposure. This toxic dust is inhaled and inadvertently spread to other areas of the home. Children in contaminated households ingest dust via normal hand-to-mouth activity.
“Unlike merely painting or papering over a lead-painted surface, lead abatement is a way to permanently remove hazards. The only way to permanently eliminate the risk of lead poisoning caused by lead-painted windows is to replace them,” Betty Martino of Alexander Window Company said.
Simonton Windows is a market leader that continues to advance the designs of their windows and doors, while developing new products that meet today’s unique economic, environmental and energy-related demands.
